|E100-93: 1 Peter 1:1 - 2:12: A Living Hope - Dr Tim Bulkeley|
This epistle is a bit of a puzzle it presents itself as written by Peter, Jesus' rough practical fisherman disciple, but it is written in smart literary Greek and the style seems to reflect Hellenistic rhetorical training. (As well as the sort of knowledge of Scripture we might expect from Peter!) Perhaps it was written by someone who owed a great debt to Peter or perhaps Peter had help from a ghost-writer â Silvanus (see 5:12) is a frequent candidate...
